Roker’s coworkers said the family “couldn’t be happier” that the baby arrived healthy and safe.

Courtney, 36, announced her pregnancy to her Instagram followers in March.

While Al has two other children, daughter Leila, 24, and son Nicholas, 20, Courtney’s baby is his first granddaughter.

When the recipe developer revealed her baby bump, Al expressed his plan to be called “Pop Pop” by the child.

“Here we go!!!” he said at the time. “So very very happy!!!!! You guys.”

Deborah Roberts, his wife, replied, “This is so very exciting!!!”

Al disclosed the baby’s gender two months later, despite wanting to be surprised” by the news.

Courtney was aware that her father “didn’t want to know,” but she unintentionally revealed the information in a text message, he stated to Entertainment Tonight in May.

“[Courtney sent] me a sonogram picture, and I said, ‘That baby looks just like you,’ and she said, ‘Doesn’t she?'” remembered the Daytime Emmy winner. “And then you see the bubbles.”

“[She wrote], ‘I’m so sorry!’” Al continued. “And I went, ‘You had one [job]!’”

Courtney and Wesley married in June 2021, one year after they got engaged amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Al and Roberts, both 62, have been married since 1995.

From 1984 to 1994, the journalist was married to Alice Bell. Courtney was adopted by the previous couple in 1987.
